  • Prevalence of quinolone qnrS resistance gene in the aquatic environment from the Avon river catchment area receiving treated wastewater from 5 wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), serving 1.5 million people and accounting for 75% of inhabitants living in the catchment area in the South West of England. Funded by NERC Grant NE/N019261/1 Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/102f8141-2a9a-4ffd-89f6-961af36ddcb3

  • This dataset comprises of weekly concentrations of fluoroquinolones in wastewater and receiving waters collected in the Avon river catchment South West UK. The following fluoroquinolones were analysed: (±)-ofloxacin, (±)-ofloxacin-N-oxide, (±)-desmethyl-ofloxacin, (±)-lomefloxacin, (±)-moxifloxacin, S,S-moxifloxacin-N-sulfate, R-(+)-besifloxacin, (±)-prulifloxacin, (±)-ulifloxacin, (±)-flumequine and (±)-nadifloxacin; ciprofloxacin, desethylene-ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin and nalidixic acid. The concentrations of (fluoro)quinolones were measured in receiving treated wastewater from 5 wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), which serves 1.5 million people accounting for 75% of inhabitants living in the catchment area in the South West of England.

  • This dataset contains water chemistry and phytoplankton cell counts collected from 3 different depths at 3 different sites in Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England, during 2018. Water samples were collected on 22 Feb, 5 Apr, 20 Apr, 30 May, 13 Jun, 27 Jun, 9 Jul, 24 Jul, 20 Aug, 21 Aug, 22 Aug, 23 Aug, 24 Aug, and 5 Oct 2018. The data available to download includes phytoplankton cell counts (cells/ml), turbidity (NTU), pH, Ammonia (mg/l), total oxidised nitrogen (mg/l) nitrite (mg/l), nitrate (mg/l), ammonium (mg/l), orthophosphate (mg/l), silica (mg/l), Potassium (mg/l), Calcium (mg/l), Geosmin (ng/l), 2-MIB (ng/l), total and soluble manganese, iron, copper, magnesium, zinc, and aluminium (all: mg/l).

  • This dataset contains water temperature measurements at 2 different locations in Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England. Water temperatures were measured using RBR SoloT thermistors (measured in °C) and HOBO TidbiT v2 loggers (measured in °F). The dataset consists of water temperature measurements from 2 locations at Durleigh reservoir between 22 February 2018 and 5 October 2018. Measurements were taken at 10 minute intervals.

  • The dataset contains 5-day of water velocities at Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England. A Nortek Vector acoustic doppler velocimeter (ADV) was used to collect the dataset. The ADV was deployed between 20 August 2018 (15:00) and 24 August 2018 (09:15), located ~ 30 m north of the surface mixers in Durleigh reservoir. The surface mixers were operating when the ADV was deployed and were switched off between 07:17 on 22 August and 16:42 on 23 August 2018.

  • This dataset contains Dissolved oxygen concentrations from 2 different locations in Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England. Two miniDOT oxygen loggers were fitted with miniWIPER’s and deployed at 2 locations in Durleigh on 30 May 2018. Both sensors were collected on 5 October 2018 and the raw data files are presented in this dataset. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/26b35c45-c174-4930-b82c-bcd0d23c39e1

  • The dataset contains light penetration through the water column at a Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England. HOBO Pendant Temperature/Light 8K Data Loggers (Onset) were positioned at 0.5 m, 1.5 m, and 2.5 m depths on a temperature chain Durleigh. The loggers were deployed between 30 May 2018 and 5 October 2018. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/fc1cf9a7-d7b0-4948-8328-497d6e071950

  • This dataset contains 7-month monitoring of weather conditions at Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England, during 2018. A Delta T WS-GP1 weather station was installed ~ 4 m above the surface of the reservoir between 5 April and 5 October 2018. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/dcfa74ce-6d05-4717-978d-e7cdf9b2039e

  • The NERC-funded South Georgia Wave EXperiment (SG-WEx) project (grant numbers NE/K015117/1, NE/K012614/1 and NE/K012584/1) was a major coordinated observational and modelling campaign to study the nature and deep vertical propagation of atmospheric gravity waves over the mountainous island of South Georgia in the Southern Atlantic. This dataset collection contains meteor radar and radiosonde measurements from King Edward Point Magnetic Observatory on South Georgia and output from high-resolution (1.5km grid, 118 vertical levels) Met Office Unified Model simulations in a box 1200km x 900km centred on the island that coincide with the radiosonde campaigns. The meteor radar observations included in this collection are continuous from February 2016 to November 2020, funding for which was continued as part of the follow-on NERC DRAGON-WEx project (NE/R001391/1,NE/R001235/1). The project also made use of 3rd party satellite data from NASA, not included in this collection.
